Re: Sickly Cali. Gold
Hi Gina, sorry about your sick nana. Sounds like the soil is way too wet. You say it's moist/wet & you didn't water for 3 weeks. Light & heat will make the soil dry out a little.
I have one in 68-70* room in sunny window & I water every 5 days or so.
Remember my old "stick trick"? I shove a dowel in pot to bottom & pull it out to check --that's my meter. If on dry side I water. If stick is wet below the 2 inches, leave it.
I also have one in my sunroom which doesn't get much direct light & temp is average 48* night - 60* day. I only have to water about once every 3-4 weeks but sparingly. Good luck
Got a lite?
